Everyone lives in perpetual fear of the wedding season. “What do I wear?” is a question that runs in people’s head the minute they hear talks about someone’s marriage. With the wedding season in full throttle, you want to do your best to stand out in the crowd. Adulthood should stand little in the way of playing dress up for these special occasions so The Week brings you the best pickings from the boutiques around Kupondole.  

Classic chic
This simple kurti with skirt is an effortless way to make sure you stand out in a crowd. It is easy to put on and easier still to carry yourself. This works wonders when you have multiple weddings to attend. You can even take it up a notch and add a touch of drama to the outfit with its banarasi shawl. Even if it is the same clothes, you will look drastically different.

Summer is all about floral outfits and this high waist lehenga is the perfect mix of traditional and modern. When you think of it on paper, bright floral skirts should be worn with plain tops to make the skirt stand out, however, the color tone as well as the light golden embroidery works really well with this lehenga. Be the talk of the wedding reception by being on the frontline of this trend that is bound to catch up very soon.

Graceful in soft tones 
One of the new designs of sari’s coming up, this peach sari is plain with an aachal that has very heavy work done. It has a side cut border and is embroidered with pearls. The sari isn't very heavy as the light tones are in trending at the moment, making it the perfect wedding outfit for youngsters who like to be traditional, graceful but still en vogue.

Simply sophisticated 
Embroidery is in this summer but there is also that risk of going overboard with the trend. Strike the right balance with this gown. Its silhouette with just one side embroidery is the epitome of sophistication. This gown is a great piece to have in your wardrobe as it can be used for a lot of different occasions. From weddings to a fancy dinner with the family, you can’t go wrong with it. The best part about it is that you get to play around with your makeup as much as you want. It will go well with smoky eyes just as much as it will go with nude makeup and bold lips.

Traditionally edgy 
When you think of weddings, you think of colors like red and gold. When we think of weddings we think of being demure and reserved but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your outfit. Stand out with this bright turquoise kurti with skirt. Its heavy but intricate embroidery works well with the plain skirt underneath.
